Septembers Top Cydia Tweaks

Jailbreaking has definitely changed iOS devices forever and the ton of Cydia apps and tweaks which can greatly improve the functions that an iDevice has can prove this point. With this in mind, here are some of the best Cydia tweaks for the month of September. Regardless if you have tried them or not, all of these apps can help iPhone users to add some more personality on to their devices which is great news for just about anyone. Before we list the top cydia tweaks for this month, if you haven’t already done so, learn how to jailbreak iOS 7 here or jailbreak iOS 8 here.

Without further ado, here are the lucky winners for this month.

  1. Alkaline

The status bar has always represented a great function of all the iOS devices which were ever built. It’s such a popular feature mainly due to the fact that it looks great and can provide some useful information. However, one misfortunate fact stands in the simple idea that users have little to no freedom when it comes down to customizing it, so this is where Cydia apps such as Alkaline come in. This one allows you to change the way that the battery icon present in the status bar looks without even needing to use Winterboard which is great.

One of its main features is the fact that it comes preloaded with 3 themes, but users can choose for a larger number that can be easily found on the Cydia marketplace.

  1. StatusHUD 2

Another Cydia app which has not been released a long time ago is known by the name of StatusHUD2. There are many who don’t really like the fact that whenever an iDevice’s volume is modified, a pop-up box appears on the screen. Well, this can be easily fixed with the help of this cydia tweak which will take the pop-up from the middle of the screen and display it in a modified version in the status bar, whenever the volume is modified.

After a couple of seconds, the volume on-screen display will disappear just like it usually does without the use of this smart app. When it comes down to using it, nobody who knows some basic principles about Jailbreaking should encounter any problems.

  1. BetterWifi7

Chances are that you’ve already used the Wi-Fi of your iOS device at least a couple of times so far until now. With this in mind, the normal iOS interface for Wi-Fi settings should seem familiar to do. This smart cydia app: BetterWifi7 serves the purpose of adding a bit more functionality to your device’s Wi-Fi. Some of the features that are added include the fact that more information is displayed about the encryption level of a certain Wi-Fi network, but it also allows users to see the passwords used for Wi-Fi networks previously, all in the Setting app’s Wi-Fi preferences. Additionally, those who use this cydia app also get the chances to refresh the Wi-Fi scan simply by pulling to refresh, just like you would do in an app such as Facebook.

These aspects along with many more make this cydia app essential for any jailbroken iOS device user who enjoys using Wi-Fi at least a couple of times per week.

  1. Meter

The name of this Cydia tweak may not give a lot of information about it, but it serves an interesting customization purpose that not many other Cydia app developers have thought about in the past. Its simple, yet interesting purpose is that the cydia app aims at replacing the original signal metres that iPhones get from the factory in order to grant your phones status bar a different look.

When it comes down to the ease of use of this Cydia tweak, it is safe to say that it is one of those cydia apps with a great user interface that just about anyone can figure out. With this in mind, in the case that you’re looking for a couple of ways to change the look of your iPhones signal bars, then Meter is for you.

  1. NCMemo

I’m personally a big fan of the notification centre for iOS devices and finding a couple of great tweaks which aim at adding more functions to it is a great feeling. Just about how many times did you want to type something really fast in order to keep yourself from forgetting it, but simply didn’t feel like accessing the Note app and doing it because of the fact that it can take quite some time? Well, NCMemo represents everything a user needs in order to make note and memo taking more efficient from all the points of view.

When it comes down to the actual features that this app has, users can take memos, but also tweak some of the app’s settings in order to make it better. While it isn’t always extremely useful, it is definitely a better alternative to taking notes using an actual app, as it is also faster.

There are definitely some people out there who prefer a neatly organized life. Well, there is a Cydia app aimed at making sure that your Notification Centre is cleaner from all the points of view. With this in mind, the main feature of this app is to place the notifications that you have received in groups in order to make viewing them neater and more efficient at the same time.

As it comes with a couple of customization options as well, NCFold is a cydia tweak perfect for those who prefer a neatly organized phone.

  1. Aria

I personally am a big fan of music and almost always listen to a song when I’m outside or using my phone at night. With this in mind, I believe that Cydia tweaks which change the way iOS users perceive their Music app are great from all the points of view. Aria pretty much represents one of the best music Cydia apps available on the market. With this in mind, it can be safely said that the Music app is brought to life with the help of the smart Cydia app.

With this in mind, there are a couple of smart features which are being offered and some of these include having the ability to queue songs, thus creating a quick playlist. Other functions include the ability to change the way that lyrics look and even change the theme of the ‘Now Playing’ interface of the Music App. With other great customization options as well, Aria definitely represents a must have for any Music lovers with a jailbroken iOS device.

  1. Pluck 2

I honestly believe that Apple didn’t do such a good job when it comes down to integrating the Music function of an iOS device with the many other functions that the device has. Pluck 2 represents a smart Cydia app that aims at allowing users to pick songs whenever someone doesn’t feel like opening the Music app or is doing another activity which requires more focus such as driving.

When it comes down to the ease of use, it can safely be said that Pluck 2 can be tried out by anyone with a love of music and that its easy user interface deserves a 5 star rating.

  1. handyPhone

This represents an incredibly useful Cydia tweak that not many people actually know about. While the function is already available with other phones on the market today, it seems like the iPhone didn’t have the opportunity to get it yet.

It serves one main purpose and this is to make dialling your friends a better experience. With this in mind, instead of searching for your friends name in the contacts, you can easily start typing the first numbers of their number in the case that your remember it and the entire number and name of the person will actually appear on the screen. While it clearly isn’t an amazing feature as it is offered on many other phones, it certainly does a great job at making calling friends a nicer experience.

      10. MusicGestures

And the last, but not least Cydia app of this post is known by the name of MusicGestures. We all love gesture based commands and this app is no different, as its main purpose is to allow people the needed ability to control their Music app simply by doing certain gestures with their fingers.

With this in mind, users can choose gestures to go to the previous and net track, play/pause, show lyrics etc.
